    Awesome guitar and the scale choice was a smart decision. I just cannot get used to the overall look of a sevenstring PRS and that goes the same with sevenstring LesPauls. I will need to try this one out if it ever arrives at a local music store though.

    Dammit Paul, why do you have to keep doing things I like? I had one of the first run of the PRS SE 7 (which I dearly regret selling) and it was excellent. Will probably buy one of these when they come out.

    Very cool. Truth be told, I am happy with my SE-7 (25" scale) but I wish I had the new SE logo on my headstock, lol!

    These look great though, and should lead to a lot of people grabbing these now who were afraid of the shorter scale. The new pickups also sound much better than the HFS-7 sounded, that pickup was SO bassy-low-middy that I had to swap it out for a Duncan Pegasus.

    About time. The only reason I sold my PRS se custom 24-7 was the scale length. Also happy about the grey black finish option.

    I wonder if the next step is a Mark Holcomb seven string signature? Would be logical if the WMI SE factories are already gearing for 26.5"..

    my god, it's finally happening, PRS is finally giving a shit about the ERG market. Maybe I'll only have to wait a couple more years for an 8. I think if I still played sevens I'd rather get the axe palace version since it's got a poplar burl top.

    Looks great with the 26.5" scale. Digging the red color option too :)

    I couldn't really gel with the fret size (I think it was medium?) on the old SE-7 because it was a really well-made instrument for a decent price.

    Ok so after all the cites hoopla I'm surprised by the rosewood fretboard and I think the pickup rings look dumb (they're kind of a PRS staple though aren't they?) but I really like this and would happily snap up both finishes and hope this is a sign there's a Holcomb-7 on the way.

    Pretty much every PRS has pickup rings and 99.999% of PRSs have rosewood boards so no idea why anybody would be surprised by this...

    In regards to the Holcomb sig - I feel like this guitar is so perfectly halfway to his specs already. Hardtail bridge, blade pickup switch, mahogany body + maple top and back vs fretboard wood, pickups, satin neck and paint job. Not a good or bad thing, just an interesting note

    I think the duncans are the reason we haven't seen a Holcomb 7.
    Judging by the pricing on these, plus the fact the ebony typically carries a price premium, I can easily see that being a 4 figure instrument with the pickups; and I can see Paul being apprehensive about launching a 4 figure import model for what he (presumably still) sees as a niche market.

    That aside though, these are an awesome thing to see. I actually hunted for an SE7 before I picked up my RGA, but all I could find were black ones :ugh:
